--Jack Handy, deep thoughts
If you want to scare a child, bring him to the service and throw him to the clowns. There are stories all over about clowns scaring children,, yet still the circus is known for being a jolly happy event in a child's life. Bah Humbug. Anything can be made into a killer.
The movie starts as our heros at make-out point. They see a comet crash and decide to investigate. They discover a huge "circus tent" and decide to go to the circus. Unfortunately, this is no circus you want to go to, because they soon find people in a Cotton Candy pod. They run for it and no one believes them. Things kind of go downhill as clowns wreck havoc around town.
This movie is campy. It is before the era of digital effects, but that is just part of its charm. The constumes are great.

Watch it Again
Yes, and yes. When does the sequel come out? There is so much more that can be done with this genre. This movie was inspired by the Blob. I've put that next on my list.
Extras Commentary, tons of featurettes about all aspects of Killer Klowns, home video from the set, and home video from pre-clown movies made by teenagage Chiodo brothers. There is plenty to keep a Klown fan happy.
